Nominations for the 2021 Stan Henwood Award closing soon!

Published: 15 March 2021

Community members are reminded that nominations are closing soon for Cardinia Shire Council’s annual Stan Henwood Award.

The award recognises outstanding individuals in Cardinia Shire who have made significant contributions to their community.

Residents are encouraged to submit a nomination for someone who they think has contributed towards making Cardinia Shire a wonderful place to live, work, learn and play.

This year, nominees are no longer required to have completed more than 10 years of community services. For the first time, the award is instead open to anyone who has made substantial community contributions to Cardinia Shire.

Nominees must have made a significant contribution to community services in Cardinia Shire, have not previously received the award and must not have been a Cardinia Shire Councillor within the last four years.

The Stan Henwood Award honours the late Stan Henwood and his lifetime contribution to Tynong and the municipality. His positive influence and contributions over the years not only improved the lives of those around him, but also saw him receive a medal from the Australian Prime Minister for Service to Sport and an Order of Australia for Service to the Community.

Nominations for the 2021 award close at 5pm on Monday 5 April 2021.

Nominations must be submitted online via the SmartyGrants portal, which will require the nominator to register an account before they can prepare and submit a nomination form.
